Epson L1800 Review – Epson has always been a household name when it comes to printer products and they have shown their specialty once again with the Epson L1800 Ink Tank System Printer which provides economical savings with high performance printing.
Looking at the printer, once can see that it stands out first with its size and secondly its weight. Its width is a definite downer when it comes to finding a perfect spot for it. Its trademark Ink Tank system is located on its right, and it has a choke valve which is useful for transportation purposes. On its back, it has a USB port to connect to your PC and a power outlet.
It has simple controls located on its top with the bare essentials.

Another feature it has is the ability to print A3+ size borderless photo prints which is perfect for designers and those who work with graphics design. When it comes down to performance, this printer has varied results.
The photo prints from this printer was superb with the colour saturation and accuracy are on point and the quality of the image was sharp and clear. The same is true for black and white prints, the ink does not show heavy bleeding and the text was clear and readable. The trade-off for the quality comes in its printing speed, during our printer speed test, it took nearly 17 minutes to print 25 pages.
Another aspect to note is that the printer is highly technical and in order to get the prints out with the quality you require, you would need to heavily tinker with its software. In conclusion, The Epson L1800 is a high grade photo printer that has long term savings built-in.
